1. Was the steal sign on for pinch runner Ciriaco to attempt a steal of third base with two outs, or did he go on his own? (Base Running 101 - Never make the third out of an inning at 3rd base.)
2. With Dempster having gone through an extensive warm up in the bullpen, should the Sox run him out as a starter tonight with an already thin bullpen sans Bailey and Hanrahan, or should they call up a minor league starter for a single appearance as they did with Webster for the double-header recently, thus giving Dempster, Doubront, and Lackey an extra day's rest?
3. When did Webster last pitch for Pawtucket, ie. is he available?
4. Anthony Ranaudo who last pitched on Thursday, May 2nd, for the AA SeaDogs, has a 4-0 record, and an ERA of 1.00 over the last 5 games, and has held opponents to a .169 BA Avg. His fastball is in the mid-90's range and following the 2011 season, he was rated as having the best curveball in the system by Baseball America. Would it be feasible to give him a look-see at this point?
